    Post 10 is really cool to look at. Keep it up.

    But the bird thing: I do not like it. Its stance/pose is unnatural. It would lose its balance and fall down straight to the ground.

    Try it again, with a weight line to figure out a cool pose that is working.

    Cheers Acki

    Here is the background for a more time-intense / focused painting, creature will be the subject over this background, so this is just step 1

    maybe 2 hours so far...

    took a few pieces of old art that never got off the ground (upper right planet and space background) created some new elements (everything else) and came up with something new...

    Cool sketchbook, i dig your ideas and your finished products. your rough sketches have a lot of life in them, but be careful when placing your final lines so you can better preserve that feeling. Also, those life drawings in your first post are great, do more like that and y'll be going places fast.

    keep it up!

    Thanks Austen, those life drawings at the beginning were from a class I had, and they were only a few out of hundreds I did in that class. I have another class similar starting in spring so I should have a lot more like that in the months to come. If I get around to it I'll post more of the ones I already did.

    Thanks again for the kind words, and yeah I had a professor tell me the same thing about my lines and being careful not to kill emotion in my drawings, good eye sir!

    nice SB, you should keep up the gesture studies! those are really helpful

    i think you're a bit too obsessed with outlines, and neglecting volumes in the process. you do volumes in your technical/perspective drawings, but for characters you try to let the outline do too much for you and it gives it a kinda traced look

    i think i recommend it too much, but andrew loomis' books would be a great read for you

    Thanks Neon Duck, yeah I have the pdf versions of several of Loomis' books, my outlining is a known issue, and I am definitely working on that. Thanks for taking the time to comment though, glad you like my SB
